Declining eyesight is considered an inevitable consequence of ageing. Yet this widely held perception can be prevented and eyesight improved by taking certain nutrients. According to a recent BBC article, based on the Trust Me I’m a Doctor TV programme, that focused on Michael Mosley and how he could improve his declining eyesight, on the recommendation of taking specific supplements.
After having an eye test from Professor John Barbur from City University in London, he discovered the results to be both ‘fascinating and depressing’. His level of night vision and perception of details were poor, but consistent with people his age. The Trust Me team then provided him with a 90 day diet of supplements containing concentrations of coloured plants, two of which are Lutein and Zeaxanthin. He also took a daily smoothie containing plenty of fruits and vegetables like kale and kiwi fruit, along with fats like milk and wheat germ oil.
Two weeks later they assessed whether taking the supplements had any effect or made much of a difference to his eyesight. They discovered that including Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zexanthin in the diet led to significant improvements in the protection of the delicate macula, along with improving eyesight.
This example provides further growing evidence that taking supplements may reverse, to slow or even possibly prevent age-related macular degeneration – one of the leading causes of vision loss in the UK. While there are calls for more studies into the benefits of these plant compounds and their many benefits for eye health, many people are already successfully improving their eyesight by taking the recommended formulations. By following the Eye Health plan here and taking the recommended nutrients, it’s possible to see significant improvements in declining eyesight.
